The British Prime Minister in an unannounced visit to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv on Saturday met with the Ukrainian President to discuss ending the conflict.

Iran PressEurope: On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree recognizing two Russia-backed regions in eastern Ukraine, the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics in the Donbas region, as independent criticizing the West for ignoring Moscow's security concerns.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an early morning televised address that he had launched a special military operation in Ukraine in response to a request for help from the leaders of the Donbas republics.

Moscow's special military operation in Ukraine, which it says aims among other things to degrade Ukraine's military potential and prevent it from becoming a bridgehead for a NATO attack, has prompted the two Nordic countries to consider joining the U.S.-led alliance.

Since the beginning of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, the UK has become an active player in this war and has made every effort to fan the flames of this war.

Britain, along with the United States and other allies, has sent several armament shipments to Ukraine in recent weeks in addition to imposing several sanctions against Russia.

In this regard, the Office of the British Prime Minister announced on Saturday night that London intends to send 120 armored vehicles as well as new anti-ship missile systems to Ukraine.

"Boris Johnson's visit to Kyiv began with his meeting with Zelensky," Andrei Sepiga, an aide to Ukraine's president, tweeted on Saturday night, posting pictures of Johnson and Zelensky meeting.

Johnson’s visit comes the day after he announced a further £100m worth of UK military assistance for Ukrainian forces, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft weaponry and so-called “suicide drones”, which loiter over the battlefield before attacking their target. 219
